[fpc-devel] fpc READ-locks fpc.cfg when compiling?

IT appears that during compilation (not the whole time, but some brief 
moment) FPC locks the fpc.cfg.
So far that is expected. while fpc reads it, it must not change.

But it seems the lock also prevents others from reading.

On w32 Vista / fpc 2.6.2

I started 2 compilations (almost at the same time), using the same 
FPC.exe (and same config and all), and one of them failed, claiming it 
could not read the config. Starting it again (while the other still 
running), all worked well.
